Smartphones: Do bigger screens drive higher data usage?
Manufacturers have introduced both regular and large-screen versions of the same model, but do consumers use them differently?

Interestingly, Apple’s big screen users consume a whopping 53% more data than Samsung’s. Does this mean that bigger really is better?
